DETROIT -- A person with knowledge of the talks says the Detroit Pistons and Jeff Bower are nearing an agreement that would make him the teams general manager. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the deal was not yet final. The Pistons hired Stan Van Gundy as their coach and team president last month. Bower was the coach at Marist College last season, but he resigned Monday. Athletic director Tim Murray said in a statement that Bower was leaving for "a very specific and compelling NBA opportunity." Bower was previously a general manager and coach in the NBA, holding both those positions with the New Orleans Hornets in 2009-10. Jonathan Papelbon Jersey

He was playing for the Detroit Tigers last spring when a woman says she was drugged at a bar before Reed took her to a Detroit casino hotel on the eve of Opening Day.Wayne County Circuit Judge Michael Callahan reinstated the case after hearing an appeal from prosecutors.It means Reed, 28, will go to trial unless a higher court intervenes. The case was dismissed in 36th District Court, the first stop for all felonies, in August after Judge Kenneth King heard evidence.Callahan said his job was to decide whether King abused hiss discretion in dismissing the case, not whether Reed was guilty or innocent.dddddddddddd.Assistant prosecutor Ana Quiroz went over the evidence for Callahan, saying hotel surveillance video shows the woman was so incapacitated that she was barely conscious.Defence attorney Ben Gonek said the womans version of events didnt add up. She claimed to be ill the next morning, he said, yet walked down six flights of stairs in high heels and passed a police car without seeking help.Reed, who wasnt in court, insists he had consensual sex with the 45-year-old woman. He is a free agent after playing for the Tigers and Triple-A Toledo last season.We fully co-operated with the investigation. He was interrogated for several hours, Gonek said outside of court.
